16. Denver--can't have Denver get to 9 ahead of us

15. Michigan--can't get to 10 ahead of us

14. Ohio St.--nah

13. Notre Dame--boring

12. BU--not as bad as BC, but still bitter about last year

11. Northeastern--fun to watch but my anti-eastern bias shows

10. Providence--you just got one and I was there cheering for you

9. Penn State--fun team to watch but I might have a little anti B10 bias?

8. Clarkson--kind of cool to pull a double...but their colors are heinous

7. Princeton--Haven't seen them this year but playing well right now. the ECAC has had enough success lately

6. UMD--tough one, want to cheer conference mate and Sandelin but tough to cheer a dirty diving squad

5. Michigan Tech--great for hockey if they win

4. Air Force--tough to go against Serratore

3. Minnesota St.-Mankato--why not, future conference mate?

2. SCSU--not sure why so many are anti St. Cloud. They are fun to watch and it might take the chip off their shoulder if they got one.

1. Cornell--old softball teammate and friend's kid plays for Cornell....great job this season by the Fargo media of picking up on this.:glare:

Definitely agree with 15 and 16.

16. Michigan--can't get to 10 ahead of us

15. Denver--can't have Denver get to 9 ahead of us

13-14. Penn State & Ohio St-Hate Big 10 Hockey

12. Notre Dame--Hate Big 10 Hockey, but they are most deserving of Big Ten Teams

9-11. Providence, Northeastern, BU-hate Hockey East

6-8. Cornell, Princeton, Clarkson ECHC, Meh

5. Michigan Tech--future conference mate, want WCHA to succeed.   I know the grandpa of one of the players.

4. Air Force--USA, USA

3. Minnesota St.-Mankato--future conference mate, want WCHA to succeed.   

2. UMD--NCHC Team.  No problem with Style of Play, UND was this type of team not that long ago.

1. SCSU--NCHC Team. Never won a title.  Best team this year.  They deserve it.  Besides will drive Mn Fan's Crazy.

Providence should be lower.  Their last natty was bs, considering they were the 16th seed and got placed in the providence regional for attendance reasons, when they weren't even the host, and it wasn't due to bracket integrity.

LOL!  Yea, because we really wanted to see BU win the title game in 2016, right?

In order of who I would like to see win the NCAA tournament, from 16 to 1:

#1:  Providence College --  Well, I have family ties there, so this should be obvious.  Besides, I want to hear Bucci yell out "LITTLE RHODY!  BIG MAN ON CAMPUS!" one more time.

MafiaMan has family in Providence?  Note to self:  Don't ever take sides against the family. :)

So your hockey favorites are heavily influenced by religion, uff da.

Why do you think a pretty small school in Indiana is popular? Haha must be their color scheme.

"2. SCSU--not sure why so many are anti St. Cloud. They are fun to watch and it might take the chip off their shoulder if they got one."

#1 reason ... their fans. If they didn't have so many terrible fans, that are total outspoken jerks, there wouldn't be near as big of a grudge towards St. Cloud. That and I never liked their diving team about 10 years ago with Lasch and the other little guy. Motzko is a solid coach though, he has done a really nice job with that program. Hope they get bounced first round.

16. UMD (They already got one during one our UNDs best seasons. DHG is a horrible person. Sandelin was kind of a jerk last year. Pionk sucks. Duluth is a bunch a hippies :) )

15. DU (NO, NO, NO - don't want to see them eclipse UND in championships ... have to imagine they will lose some talent after the season)

14. SCSU (Jan Brady doesn't win championship. Their fans have earned this spot on the list)

13. Michigan (Again, they do not need to build on their lead of championship. Though I can sympathize with the title drought.)

12. Boston University (Last year, the Eichel year, a few other games I'd like to forget. I'd be ok if no team from Boston ever won again.)

11. Notre Dame (Just never been a Notre Dame hockey fan. No specific reason.... maybe the Lucia connection? Maybe those hideous helmets?)

10.  Providence (Blah, boring ... hockey east)

9. Northeastern (Boring, No thanks! BUT They were the greatest show on ice going into the 2016 tourney. UND had no chance against them .... so I read)

8. Penn St. (Great start for this program, but you need to have some agonizing defeats first. Pay your dues, build your program, your time will come)

7. Ohio St. (Meh)

6. Cornell (Meh)

5. Clarkson (Meh)

4. Princeton (I'd be ok with this)

3. Michigan Tech (Sure, old WCHA bottom feeder finding success now. This would be fine)

1/2. Mankato / Air Force (Mankato - Former WCHA team, looking for that first title. Bro went to grad school there after UND. / AF - Can't cheer against a military academy .... 'Merica! Sweet Jerseys and a great coach.
